The standards for conviction with or without direct evidence in any charge brought by the government or any allegation publicly made are very low in the U.S.. In fact there are dozens of people sitting on death row convicted on just circumstantial evidence alone, no direct evidence whatsoever.

In the case of voter fraud committed by America's organized right wing operating under the authority of the Republican Party there is enough direct evidence illustrating a convincing pattern of a broad conspiracy to steal the election of November 2, 2004 in the U.S. that it would make former mob boss John Gotti blush in his grave.

As more and more people come to the realization that America's shadow government has come out of the shadows and is no longer threatened by the daylight of the media they now own oh so completely and is it no longer threatening the social and environmental compact in America but is rather acting aggressively and violently against it in the open instead of covertly as was done past.
